What are Coconut Oil Softgel Capsules?
Most fats in the diet come from long chain triglycerides, but the fats in coconut oil are known as medium chain triglycerides (MCT). This means these have a shorter chain of fatty acids. Medium chain triglyceride fats are quickly absorbed by the liver and have become popular in sports and health nutrition as they can be used as a quick source of energy or converted into ketones. Hence why it is popular among athletes and those on high fat, low carbohydrate diets.
Fats have a high energy value of 9kcal per 1g. Making coconut oil ideal for those looking to add extra calories to their diet. Coconut oil is often used in cooking, baking and added to beverages such as coffee. It has become increasingly popular in the health and beauty market. Especially in the hair, skin and teeth sector.
